Mallam Ali averred that the appointment of the team is indeed a call to service; “We must therefore be ready to hit the ground running by placing our time, resources and endowments at the disposal of the University so that the raison d’etre for our appointment will be realized and the expectation of the State met”.
Mallam Ali further reiterated that it is axiomatic to underscore the point even at the risk of stating the obvious, that Government alone cannot fund education to the enviable height and to that extent, all hands must be on deck. To this end, he solicited for the co-operation and collaboration of the Management, Teaching, Non-teaching staff and the students of the University in the arduous task ahead of the team.
Mallam Ali gave the assurance on behalf of other Council members that their decision shall be driven by justice, fairness, equity, humanness and fear of God. “We shall always be guided by the philosophy of what is best for the system at all times, irrespective of our individual wishes, interest and aspiration, what is best for the system is best for all”.
